Ok, so I made an icon a while back (more than likely for a challenge) and, I can't remember how I got a specific thing done.

This is the icon:

And my problem is, the purple glow that is in the middle. Can anybody with a knowledge of Photoshop help me by telling me how that technique can be done LOL!! (I fail so much, that looking at my .psd of the icon doesn't even help me :/

Thank You in advance!!

Points2Shop is a site where you can earn points which can then be used to get items off To get these points all you have to do is complete surveys, watch videos or win games. All you have to do to get started is sign up with valid information, this valid information is required before you can receive any items you want to redeem with any points you earn.

In order to get your items, you need to earn specific amounts of points (each item has its own point value) where you can then visit the "spend points" section and choose your item(s). Once you have ordered your product, it can take between 3-5 working business days to approve, and anywhere from 1 day to 3 weeks for your items to be delivered (depends on locations)

The more points you earn, the more and better items you can get.

I've been thinking recently (be scared :P LOL!) and have come to the decision that next year, I will make my LJ more used, along with my graphics journal too.

My plans are to possibly make my main journal partial friends only, or even friends only. Those who are already friends, will stay as friends, so that's nothing to worry about.

I also think I might, try and possibly change my layout through the year (if I can get different ones made, or make different ones for myself, and of course, remember how to change it all and stuff)

I've also noticed on other peoples LJ's that they have a scrapbook post. This prolly sounds really stupid, but, what is the scrapbook?

I've decided to sort my entire music collection out. This is not an easy task. I have around 17,000 songs to go through.

What I'm doing is sorting them so they are all tidy, because I hate mess when it comes to stuff online, on my computer, and especially my music folders.

The only problem is, I'm getting bored already, and I've only gone through 3 folders, I have around 30 more main folders to go through, with between 3 and 20 folders within them. This is gonna take me some time, but it will be worth it in the end.

After sorting my music out, I'll probably go through my videos and graphics stuff and sort them out too, that I'm also dreading, because I started out all nice and neat, but then got lazy when it came to needing stuff done and saved quickly, I just shoved everything into one folder, with the intention of sorting it after I was done, and I kept doing that until I had too many things to sort out, and couldn't be bothered.

It needs doing, and while I do not have a job, I thought maybe, this could be a good time to make sure it is all done and dusted, that and the fact that the BigBang Challenge for [Unknown site tag] has a rather long deadline, and I'd like to have everything sorted for when I come to sit down and get on with that.

So I had a job interview today. Interview went well. I actually got the job. That's the good times.

The bad times is that I had to turn it down. It was only a 4 hour contract.

Not so bad, if I could get another part time job. Only during the interview she basically said although it was a 4 hour contract, I'd be needed to cover the rest of the full time staff holidays and sickness, which means, I'd have to be available for if she needed me.

My problem is, I'm on job seekers, and the contract for that is to be actively seeking work. Also, if I was to get another part time job, my contracted hours would always come before any 'fill in' hours, so it wouldn't work for what she was asking of me. That and it would be 1 hours pay just to travel there and back. Not really worth it.

Gutted, as I thought it was a 12 hour shift, which would have been great. Now for Christmas Job Applications.

This time I'm looking for programs and stuff, I think I got the basic use of the mac down now (though, i am still learning as I go along :D)

If you can help, or think you can help, please comment :D Thanks!

Your result for The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz]...


52% Ravenclaw, 54% Hufflepuff, 43% Slytherin and 57% Gryffindor!

You might belong in Gryffindor,

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve, and chivalry

Set Gryffindors apart;

          Gryffindor's cardinal traits are bravery, pride, stubbornness and impulsiveness. Most people in the house of Gryffindor will be extraverted. (Remember, introversion is different than being shy: you can be a shy extrovert.) Gryffindors gain energy and life by being around people, grain strength from friends and enjoy working with those close to them. However, they are also emotionally volatile and can experience a wide range of feelings in a short amount of time, from unbridled happiness to deep depression to unrestrained rage. They are less emotionally stable than some of the other houses (such as Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff); Gryffindors are also impulsive. They're also generally good-hearted and trusting, and for the most part like people at first sight unless they are given a reason not to. Gryffindors are Prideful, bad at taking criticism and easilyget into conflicts with others—this is the main trait that would bring their overall level of agreeableness from high to average.

          A Gryffindor's prideful nature coupled with their sense of justice and stubborn behavior causes them to be extremely set in their ways. They have a difficult time backing down from a fight or admitting that they are wrong. It's also very hard for them to get over a bad first impression or change their opinion on someone.

Okay, so, I'm kinda needing a tad help with iTunes.

I've decided to sort out my entire iTunes, but for when it is sorted is what I need the help for.

I'm wanting to have it so my music folders are separated into the Artist > Albums BUT I also want any Soundtracks to be kept together, rather than certain songs from soundtracks being put into the artists folders.

Is there anyway of me doing this?

Thank You!

So, I got a brand new empty iTunes to play with. Of course I'm going to put most of my music back on from my last one (I still use my other one sometimes too) but, because it's all brand new and empty, I was wondering if anybody could recommend any music to me. It doesn't matter what type as I will listen to anything at least once :D

I'm in for a day of graphics and music sorting today. So I thought it would be the best day to ask haha!

Oooh, non music related question, but for those who use macs, how do I figure out what my screen size is for background wallpapers and stuff?

First off, I had a job interview yesterday and lets just say there was no point in me even doing it. Didn't get the job, though I knew I wouldn't after leaving the interview.

Second, I am sorting out my entire LJ, from friends to icons, to mood theme, to tags and posts. I'm still debating on whether to make it a friends only LJ or a partial friends only, or just leave it completely public. Now that I have my graphics one for all my graphics, I'm teetering on the edge of friends only for this one, as I do intend to use it more often. If I choose either friends only pr partial friends only, I would really love some help and stuff, on getting it all sorted (even though I've used LJ for a while now, I'm still pretty new at all the intricate things that go with it)

This is a little nifty site where, by doing some online surveys, watching video's, and just passing the time away, can earn you points to trade in for real items on Amazon. Granted you need a fair amount to order some of the great stuff, but it really does work. There is no scam that I've seen yet, and I've had no complaints from anybody else I know who uses it.

All you need to do is click the banner here, and register, free of charge.

A friend of mine has decided to make a facebook group called Living With Complex Pain Syndrome.

This group is not just for people who have the condition, but for anybody really, as it is full of information about the condition and what those individuals who suffer from it have to live with day by day.

I'm posting the link here, to maybe spark some interest in other online sources.

Ok, so I've been having problem with my Blackberry connecting to the internet that is supposed to come with the Blackberry (has been fine up until around 5 days ago) been on the phone to customer services 4 times, and into the O2 store. Bot have said that it's either a sim card problem or a handset problem - so I've got a new sim card. I ave to wait until 24 hours after registering the new sim card to work out if it's working properly or not, that is around 8.30pm tomorrow night. I've decided to give it until Friday to figure out if it's broke or not. If the new sim card doesn't work properly then it is a handset issue, which means it will be cheaper for me to get a whole new contract phone rather than pay for a new handset.

I'm torn between two phones:

Blackberry Torch 9800:

£27 a month for 300 minutes, unlimited text messages and 500MB data (it is currently on offer, but don't know how long for)

iPhone 3GS:

£32 a month for 300 minutes, unlimted text messages and 500MB of data (this is how much it is no matter what)

Any recommendations on either of these phones would be fantastic :D
